Shahid Kapoor made everyone sit up and take note of his immaculate acting chops yet again with his latest venture, Kabir Singh, also featuring Kiara Advani!
And now, there have been reports doing round that the actors next venture, a biopic on boxer Ngangom Dingko Singh, has been shelved. However, a leading entertainment portal, SpotBoyE, has now reported that the director of the biopic, Raja Krishna Menon, also the man being films like Said Ali Khan starrer Chef and Akshay Kumar’s Airlift, has only postponed the film and not shelved it.
Speaking about the same, the portal has quoted Menon saying, “We are both committed to this movie. It’s not shelved, neither am I looking for any other actor. It’s just that we are on hold.”
The filmmaker further revealed, “We were supposed to start in early 2019, but could not complete the script in all respects. This, in turn, delayed the project. Now, Shahid Kapoor has given a mega hit Kabir Singh and to be honest he wants to dwell a little deeper on which film he should take up next. But this does not mean that he is not doing the Dingko Singh biopic with me. I repeat, it’s not shelved. We shall go with it, but yes, not this year.”
For the unreserved, Dingko is a boxing legend that not many know about. What’s more is that the boxer is the first and only Asian gold medalist boxer from our country in the Bantamweight category. A cancer survivor, Dingko, has won the King’s cup in Bangkok in 1997. He has also bagged a Gold medal at the Asian Games in the 1998. He is service personnel of the Indian Navy.
Well, only time will tell what the true fate of this film will be!
